On-Demand Services

The following is a list of education-based online services that staff and students may use on-demand. These services do not have a standing agreement with the school, the district, or the state, but are safe to use for staff and students unless otherwise noted.

Some of the following services are available for staff use only; some are available for student use as long as no Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or account creation is involved in the student's use of the service. Please carefully read any notes listed under the "Status" column to ensure the service is being used only by approved parties.

Although the following services meet the requirements of state and federal law, all students' online activity should be closely monitored during school hours. Students who are found to be in violation of state or federal law, or of Frontier Charter Academy's technology use policies, may be subject to suspension of computer and internet privileges and may also be subject to other penalties and disciplinary measures.
